Envy – the Green Monster that’s Deconstructing the West

Postmodernism, Deconstuctionism, Third Wave Feminism, Marxism, Cultural Marxism, Socialism, and Progressivism are all examples of far left ideologies that spring forth from the weak’s envy of the strong; they are collectivist ideologies that embody Friedrich Nietzsche’s concept of “slave morality”. Envy, which according to Dr Norberto Keppe from the Freud line of psychoanalysis, is at the heart of all mental disorders and pathologies; thus, it is not a far stretch to say that all of the collectivist ideologies listed above are a haven for the mentally ill and the pathological. Yes, we should listen to them, but not to exercise intellectual fairmindedness, but so that we might be able to help them work through their psychological disorders, and get the help they need to heal their fragmented psyche.  However, we do not, and should not, give serious consideration to their claims and ideologies, because they are merely spewing forth rationalizations to assuage their own self-loathing and pathological envy of the successful.

“Master morality for Nietzsche is the morality of the vigorous, life loving, strong; it’s the morality for those who love adventure, delight in creativity, and their own sense of purposefulness and assertiveness. Slave morality is the morality of the weak, the humble, those who feel week, the victimized—afraid to venture out into the big bad world. Weaklings are the chronically passive, largely because they are afraid of the strong; as a result, the weak feel frustrated—they can’t get what they want out of life. They become envious of the strong, and they also secretly start to hate themselves for being so cowardly and weak.

But no one can live thinking that he or she is deeply hateful, and so the weak begin to develop a rationalization, a rationalization that tells them that they are the good and the moral, because they are the weak, humble, passive. Patience is a virtue. Obedience is a virtue; they can’t do their own will, they have to obey, so they “make it a virtue”. Humility, as being on the side of the weak and the downtrodden, people just like you. And so of course the opposites of those things must be the evil; aggressiveness, pride, independence, being physically and materially successful. Sound familiar? Sure. But of course Nietzsche says it’s a rationalization, and a smart weakling is never quite going to convince himself of it, and that will do damage inside. Meanwhile, the strong will be laughing at him, and that will do damage inside. The strong and rich will carry on getting stronger and richer, and enjoying life, and seeing that, will do more damage inside.

Eventually, the smart weakling will feel such a combination of self-loathing and envy of his enemies that he will need to lash out; he will feel the urge to hurt in any way he can his hated enemy. But of course he can’t risk direct physical confrontation, he’s a weakling; his only weapons are words. […] hate as a chronic condition leads to the urge to destroy. But again, your only weapons are words, how can you use words to destroy? I think the whole idea of deconstruction comes out of this. Postmodernism is populated by large numbers of people who like the idea of deconstructing other people’s work; it’s the opposite of constructing something of your own.”

~Stephen Hicks, “Stephen Hicks: Nietzsche Perfectly Forecasts the Postmodernist Left

Dr. Norberto Keppe, who was connected to Freud’s line of psychoanalysis, found this out about envy:

One of his [Freud’s] students Melanie Klein verified that the biggest problem lay in something that Freud himself discovered while working in a psychiatric hospital, which he called “envy“. He observed this in the more seriously mentally disturbed. …Melanie Klein changed the Freudian sexual focus to the idea that envy lay at the base of psychological problems. She used this word [envy] to describe a feeling of wanting to destroy the goodness of other people. What we daily take note of in sick individuals, especially the most seriously ill, is that they want to spoil what others have. So, envy is not the desire to have what others have, but instead is the desire to destroy the goodness that others have.

According to my discovery in 1977 of what I call “inversion”, which is based on envy, the human being is upside down because of this envy. Envy twists the human being against goodness and in favor of evil. That is, against sanity in favor of sickness. Envy spawns inversion. The envious individual inverts everything and because of that, he becomes sick. We see this especially in the most serious mental, social and organic diseases. Now, there is not a single sick person who is not envious. The greatest problem of all of humanity is this problem of inversion and envy. That is why humanity is reaching the end in terms of personal health and ecology.

Envy disturbs us because it makes us unconscious. […]the unconscious is an attitude that the human being has against consciousness. He becomes unconscious. […] For example, intelligence: in truth, human beings have in their mental structure all possible knowledge and perception that human beings can have. But because of inverted attitudes, attitudes of envy, he denies more and more of this perception. And the perception decreases so much with aging that when he is 27 years old, his intelligence is so diminished that he is not able to understand the world anymore. He enters into a state of corruption.

The idea the world has is that envy is related to development — to wanting something more. But envy is a denial of something — not only what the other has, but also what the person him or herself has. The question of life, for example. The human being knows that life does not belong to him, that it was not he who created life. Then he denies it, and by doing that, he also denies the existence of a better life for others. So he tries to destroy not only what others have, but also what he has. He does this of course in an unconscious way, because envy is an attitude against goodness. It is the privation [lack] of goodness. This gradually undermines his consciousness, his intelligence. So envy and inversion lead the human being to an unconscious state. We become unconscious as a consequence of our attitudes against consciousness.

Dr. Norberto Keppe, “Envy, Madness, and True Reality

The spoiling and deconstructing the creativity, joy, and happiness of others by envious people was spoken of by Jesus in the parable of the weeds in Matthew 13:24-29 (NIV):

Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.

27 “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’

28 “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied.

“The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’

29 “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’”

Coincidentally, Satanism is said to be the religion of inversion, as it said to invert and deny all that is pure, good, and true and calls it evil, while it exalts and deifies folly, untruth, and evil. Envy is the internal state of being that creates a person’s living Hell within them; compare these three quotes from Nietzsche, Jesus, and Isaiah:

“All men of resentment [envy], are these physiologically distorted and worm-riddled persons, a whole quivering kingdom of burrowing revenge, indefatigable and insatiable in its outbursts against the happy, and equally so in disguises for revenge, in pretexts for revenge: when will they really reach their final, fondest, most sublime triumph of revenge? At that time, doubtless, when they succeed in pushing their own misery, indeed all misery there is, into the consciousness of the happy; so that the latter begin one day to be ashamed of their happiness, and perchance say to themselves when they meet, ‘It is a shame to be happy! There is too much misery!’” ~Nietzsche, On the Genealogy of Morality

“If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea. If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out. And if your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than to have two feet and be thrown into hell. And if your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell, where ‘the worms that eat them do not die, and the fire is not quenched.’

~Jesus, Mark 9:44-48

“And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcasses of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.” ~Isaiah 66:24

“Keppe accomplished the unification of the field of spirituality with science when he considers that the human being was created essentially in goodness, beauty and the truth, but, due to his opposition towards his Creator (theomania and envy) he inverts his will, falling from a perfect conduct into illness and suffering.” ~Trilogiaanalitica.org

The idea that envy inverts and turns our Will “upside down” reminds me of Will in the Netflix series “Stranger Things”, where he is trapped in the “Upside Down” region, an astral like plane of existence. The Upside Down seems to be the perfect metaphor for those who have been consumed and perverted by envy into an internal state of inverted consciousness, and who are exercising their Will to head further down the path of unconsciousness.

Here is an example of how envy works: An envious woman, known as the seductress archetype (woman in red), comes in and seeks to steal the creation (partner/relationship) from a creator (woman) who has already intentionally created her relationship. The seductress accomplishes this by confusing the creator’s partner, and seduces him to serve her Will, instead of the initial creator’s Will.  In the same way, a certain type of seductress energy comes in and turns a government from serving the people’s Will, and inverts the government to serve their Will instead.

It’s a triangulation initiated by an envious third party in an attempt to steal the creator’s creation, where they must invert the focus of the creation away from their creator through seduction or intimidation, and place the creation’s focus onto themselves, however, the creator must learn to set healthy boundaries to overcome this obstacle.  In the case of the relationship example, it is the woman’s job to set healthy boundaries around the relationship to protect it from external interference of envious women, and in the case of the macro example, it is the people’s job to set healthy boundaries around their government to protect it from the interference of envious companies, governments, and organizations.

We can apply the Hermetic Principle of Rhythm to the two states we find ourselves with here in this plane, that of goodness/internalization, and that of envy/externalization.

“The Master, however, carries this to a much higher degree of proficiency, and by the use of his Will he attains a degree of Poise and Mental Firmness almost impossible of belief on the part of those who allow themselves to be swung backward and forward by the mental pendulum of moods and feelings.” ~The Kybalion, The Principle of Rhythm

We must learn to use our Will to polarize fully into goodness rather than envy, and I would surmise that the dark masters and their followers seek to polarize themselves firmly into the inverted state of envy. To do this, we must seek out those areas where we are still envious, and transform ourselves into a powerful creator; which requires that we become more conscious, and less unconscious.  To accomplish this task, I highly recommend the integral process I’ve developed called “the Unity Process“, which combines the Hermetic Principles (natural law), the Trivium, Socratic Questioning, Jungian shadow work, and the Emotional Freedom Techniques into an easy to use system that helps people process their emotional upsets, correct their poor thinking, set healthy boundaries, and balance their internal emotional states.  Rather than staying too focused on our contrasting experiences, being envious of those who are able to intentionally create their lives, and seeking to deconstruct and destroy their creativity and happiness to feel powerful, we will be able to work through contrasting experiences, become clear about what we want to create, place our focus on what we want to create, and finally to create it through the power of intention.

EDIT (March 20th, 2024):

The company NVIDIA produces the premier GPU (graphics processing units) and ML (machine learning) chips for AI inference and acceleration, and while AMD is attempting to keep up, they’re still leaps and bounds behind NVIDIA’s mass adoption, and therefore software support is also lagging behind. For any home, business, or major corporation, using NVIDIA GPU and ML cards are by far the best (and most expensive) way to go. Gone are the days of buying a gaming GPU for $100 USD, now a top tier gaming graphics card for personal use from NVIDIA costs $2000.

I find it fascinating though that NVIDIA is named after the Roman goddess “Invidia”, for she is the goddess of “envy”:

“Her face was sickly pale, her whole body lean and wasted, and she squinted horribly; her teeth were discoloured and decayed, her poisonous breast of a greenish hue, and her tongue dripped venom. … Gnawing at others, and being gnawed, she was herself her own torment. ” ~ Ovid (about Invidia) in Metamorphoses

Since AI is in some way meant to be a god of sorts, something that we are being pushed to bow down and submit to, it is no small wonder that the main company making computer hardware for it is named after the goddess of envy. I’ll add that the company logo for NVIDIA is an “eye”, and we see that the company name is missing the “I” from in front of NVIDIA, but it really isn’t, as the “eye” logo replaced the “I” in the name.
